2012 Heart & Hands Estate Clone 667 Finger Lakes Pinot Noir

12.3% alc., pH 3.41, TA 0.62, 23 cases, $44. Yield 1.77 tons per acre. 100% whole cluster. Aged 18 months in twice-filled French oak barrels. Unfiltered. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. The nose is both good and bad with fresh fruit aromas of black cherry and raspberry complimented by dark red rose petal and seasoned oak, but there is a whole cluster driven note of stem and green bean that detracts. The fruit is highly concentrated and supported by well proportioned tannins, and the mouthfeel is very polished. Should be interesting to see how this wine evolves. Score: 87-88.
